The trick to getting authentically YOU wedding photos? This stellar NY/NJ-based photographer

I love it when a photographer makes me feel like I'm worthy of photographing no matter what I look like, if I'm awkward as hell, or if I deviate from the norms that dictate what we think is "right" or "pretty," or "traditional." That's why the ethos of one of our most rad partners, New York and New Jersey-based Adena at Studio A Images, resonates so much with us. Obviously we do our best to make sure all of our vendors are top notch AND totally inclusive, but sometimes they just fit so comfortably into our mindset that I've just go to introduce you.

Industrial chic vibes at this vintage-inspired two-groom wedding inspiration

Manhattan-based couple George and Matt were the stars of this vintage-inspired two-groom wedding inspiration. It was all Art Decor glamour of the Gatsby era brought into modern times.

Yellow flowers, pub crawls, & a Jedi knighting at this New Jersey woodland wedding

Sam and Zig wanted a big DIY event, but splurged on the things that were most important to them, like their epic yellow and white flowers. The color perfectly match the heat of the day (a heat index of 105F!). Just wait until you see their gorgeous ceremony arch. In lieu of a big formal reception, these two beer lovers had a dinner and a pub crawl through Philly as their ceremony after-party.
